POTENTIAL NEW AGENT FOR UNCONVENTIONAL WARFARE
While the title of the latest EP from these quirky New England wildmen may be a mouthful, the musical nuances are subtle enough for anyone to understand. Simply stated, the newest release from Scissorfight ROCKS, and yes, capitalization is well deserved. Taking the dirtiest sounds from the boogie side of the swamp and adding in some intellectually challenging lyrical content, Scissorfight are the North's answer to bands like Molly Hatchet and Black Oak Arkansas, who felt that taking a handful of pills and dousing them down with a bottle of Jack was considered standard rock 'n' roll procedure. It's that kind of vibe that this New Hampshire quartet emits, and while there's nary a Confederate flag in sight, somewhere up there, all those dead '70s rock stars are smiling when watching Scissorfight carry their torch loud and proud.
